    The Ultimate Laundry room

    Thought I would share with you the Laundry room I was working on.

    Here is the rough space.  This is the main entry from the garage so it needed to beautiful, (for the back door guests) serve as a mud room, Laundry room, extra storage area, entry to the walk in pantry and lastly a desk area was needed.  A tall order for a room with five doors leading in and out.  Did I mention it has a door to the kitchen and then a door that goes to the master closet.  (I have actually designed this feature in homes many times, a door to the master closet from the Laundry.  It really saves steps)

    The cabinets I custom designed going in. (that is the door to the pantry)

    The freezer was built into the Cabinets so it would disappear.

    A bench was built right next to the garage door with storage for jackets above and boots in the bench.  There is also a built in ironing board in the drawer on the left

    We used a large copper sink for the laundry sink and a French pastry table for folding laundry. 

    The exterior entrance to the Laundry room.



    The Patio off of the entrance

    Another view of the outside entrance to the Laundry.  Isn't it charming.

    I think I could even enjoy doing Laundry if I got to Do it in this room.  What about you?  What things do you expect a laundry room to double as?

    Oh, this is an amazing laundry room! I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven to have a room like this! You did so good!! The copper sink is wonderful and all of the space/storage. I'm truly coveting right now! ;)

    Ummmmm...I seriously don't have the right words to describe how gorgeous this is! I was just thrilled when we moved to our house and we had an actual laundry room instead of a little closet! This is so incredible and you are incredibly talented! It makes me motivated to dress mine up a bit even though it will NEVER look like that! :-)
